About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from The Celestial Railroad Hawthorne's bright and witty parody upon Bunyan's immortal allegory, The Pilgrim's Progress, first appeared in the Democratic Review. The satire was so keen and witty and at the same time so genial in tone, that it was republished by the American Sunday-school Union a few months after its first appearance under the title A Visit to the Celestial City. Hawthorne's name was t attached to it. He was t then widely kwn as an author. As one of his biographers says of him at this period, He wrote stories and published them in magazines, but body knew who wrote them. ...For a long time it was supposed they were written by a woman. About three years after the story was issued by the Union, it was reprinted in a London edition of Mosses from an Old Manse, and four years later still in an American edition of the same book.
